Formatted Abstract/Summary
Hannibal found it difficult, but in the Baroque period music and musicians had no trouble crossing the Alps. Many German musicians had to show that they had studied in Italy, and Italians took some of the most lucrative positions in northern Europe. In France, the extrovert Italian style was the elephant in the room: there was outrage at the incursions of the Italians on the pure French style. While Marais preserved that purity, Couperin set about achieving his aesthetic ideal, the happy unity of styles.

In this concert we present some of the finest chamber music from the time leading up to the “Querelle des Bouffons”, the fight between supporters of the French and Italian styles in the middle of the eighteenth century, interspersed with brief readings from the combatants.
